Celtic Word Game

Postby księżycowy » 2012-05-27, 20:52

Since the sub-forums are all shmushed together, why not have a few games for all Celtic languages? A little Celtic unity might be a good thing. :yep:

If you don't know the rules, check here.

Unity is overrated. The ancient Celts weren't big on unity, you know. (That's why the Roman were able to kick their asses.)

See? More proof unity is good. We would have been able to kick their asses if we had some back then. :D Though honesty I do agree, unity is overrated.

Glic means cute in Gaelige? Weird, it means wise or keen (intellectually) in Gàidhlig.

Yup, "cute" in Gaelige is either glic or cleasach. Maybe it's cute to be wise? :P

Yes, it is. Maybe you should study it. :twisted:

This is reminding me of a strange Gaelic story I read a while back about spirits that protect graveyards according to Gaelic lore...
